Senator David Perdue Comments On President’s Budget

“We need to see a serious commitment to solving this debt crisis and creating a stable fiscal future for our country”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, comments on the release of President Trump’s budget for fiscal year 2019:

“Since coming to the United States Senate, I’ve been warning that because of our debt crisis we are losing the right to do the right thing in funding our country’s priorities. Last week’s funding situation and this budget underscores just how broken our budget process has become. We have reached the point where if we do not make serious changes to our large and growing entitlement programs, we will never be able to balance our budget. President Trump has been successful in turning around the economy and removing excess regulations. We have already passed the tipping point, but this has bought us some time. No matter which party is in control in Washington, we need to see a serious commitment to solving this debt crisis and creating a stable fiscal future for our country.”
